Green Silicon Carbide Stone Burrs
These Silicon Carbide Green Stone Burrs give a finer, more detailed finish to your decorative engraving work on glass, stone and gemstones. For glass engravers this will give you the same effect as that of sandblasting, it will leave a less pale finish than a white Arkansas stone, but not as bright a finish as a diamond burr, it will dull down the diamond engraving to a slightly softer tone.
These carbide stones are also excellent for creating texture to wood carvings, ceramic and porcelain, gold, silver and non-ferrous metals. Mounted on a 2.35mm (3.32") shank.
Choose from the following green bur:
- Set of 4: 1 x Ball 3mm, 1 x Ball 5mm, 1 x Flame, 1 x Bullet
- Ball 3mm
- Ball 5mm
- Knife Edge
Begin using the drill at a very slow speed and increase, finding your own way and preferred speed. Do not exceed 25,000 RPM.

“Best green stones that I can get. Hard and long wearing. Finally found a stone that works for me without disintegrating” - Margot May Designs
"The green stone cuts very smoothly. I used it to obliterate some marks made with a ball diamond. It did this with the greatest of ease making it an excellent stone for modelling" - R.Page. Guild of Glass Engravers
